SCI Supports America’s Wildlife Habitat Conservation Act 

On February 29th, Rep. Bruce Westerman, Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, introduced America’s Wildlife Habitat Conservation Act. This bill invests $300 million yearly in state government-led wildlife management. These funds will go towards habitat restoration, forest management, and stakeholder collaboration. 

Critically, the bill also addresses Endangered Species Act reform by requiring the federal government to set recovery goals; enables state recovery strategies; and provides an off-ramp for species from the ESA lists. 

SCI’s EVP of International Government & Public Affairs Ben Cassidy said, “SCI is proud to support Chairman Bruce Westerman’s America’s Wildlife Habitat Conservation Act. The time for ESA reform is long overdue, and enabling states to manage their wildlife is critical for American hunting and conservation efforts. We thank Chairman Westerman for his leadership and look forward to this investment in America’s wildlife and habitat.”
